About the Editors

Like the other Nature titles, Nature Climate Change has no external editorial board. Instead, all editorial decisions are made by a dedicated team of professional editors, with relevant research and editorial backgrounds.

Chief Editor: Bronwyn Wake, PhD, Springer Nature, UK

Bronwyn joined Nature Climate Change in 2012. She has handled research manuscripts and review and opinion articles across the entire breadth of physical climate sciences, the marine and aquatic environment, and interdisciplinary articles integrating natural and social science disciplines in the context of climate and global environmental change. In November 2014 she moved to the Sydney office before returning to the London office to become Chief Editor in May 2016. Bronwyn completed her postgraduate studies at University of Tasmania, Australia, with a PhD in trace element biogeochemistry and first class Honours in Antarctic Studies. Her postdoctoral work at the University of Southampton, UK and European Institute for Marine Studies, Brest, France focused on trace metal cycling in marine waters and their roles as micronutrients for phytoplankton. Bronwyn is based in the London office.


Senior Editor: Alyssa Findlay, PhD, Springer Nature, Germany 

Alyssa joined Nature Climate Change in mid 2019 and handles manuscripts broadly in the area of climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation. She holds a PhD in Oceanography from the University of Delaware, USA and completed postdoctoral work in the Department of Geological and Environmental Sciences at Ben Gurion University of the Negev, Israel, and in the Department of Bioscience at Aarhus University, Denmark. Her research ranged from marine and lake biogeochemistry to carbon cycling in Arctic marine sediments and integrated chemical, microbiological and modelling approaches. Alyssa is based in the Berlin office, and works part time.


Senior Editor: Tegan Armarego-Marriott, PhD, Springer Nature, UK

Tegan joined Nature Climate Change at the end of 2019 and handles manuscripts in the area of ecological and  biological responses to climate change. Born and raised in Western Australia, Tegan completed Conservation Biology and Biochemistry majors, and undertook at Molecular Biology Masters program at the University of Western Australia, before moving to Germany for further study. She completed her PhD and postdoctoral work at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology, focusing on the biogenesis and activity of plant chloroplasts. Tegan is based in the London office.


Senior Editor: Lingxiao Yan, PhD, Springer Nature, China

Lingxiao joined Nature Climate Change in March 2021. He handles research manuscripts in the area of policy and socio-economic dimensions of climate change. He holds a PhD in Marine Policy from University of Delaware and Master of Environmental Management from Duke University, USA. Before joining Nature Climate Change, he was an assistant professor at South China Agricultural University, specialized in environmental and energy economics. His research focused on the impact of changing environment on human welfare using quantitative social science approaches. Lingxiao is based in the Shanghai office.


Senior Editor: Jasper Franke, PhD, Springer Nature, Germany

Jasper joined Nature Climate Change in January 2022 after working as an editor at Nature Communications since 2019. He obtained his PhD from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research and Humboldt University of Berlin, Germany. His research focused on adapting and developing data analysis methods rooted in network theory to be used for paleoclimate data. At Nature Climate Change he handles manuscripts on physical climatology and climate change impacts. Jasper is based in the Berlin office.


Associate Editor: Danyang Cheng, PhD, Springer Nature, China

Danyang joined Nature Climate Change in July 2023. She holds a PhD from Tsinghua University where her research focused on sustainability assessment and carbon emission mitigation pathways. At Nature Climate Change, she handles manuscripts in the area of behavioural and social sciences. Danyang is based in the Shanghai office.
